We had a great time in Mark's flat in the Poble Sec area of Barcelona. Mark was very friendly and accommodating in agreeing a time to meet me and hand over the key, and gave some good recommendations. I wish I'd had more time to chat to him, as it sounds as though he has an interesting background. The flat is comfortable, clean, and has everything you might need. It also has a funky feel - and it's right next to the Metro station so is perfect for popping back for an afternoon nap. We enjoyed having a morning cuppa on the balcony too. It's not a quiet flat, as the sounds of other residents of the building drift through the walls on all sides, but this didn't bother us, and for a couple of nights we found it quite charming.
The area is lively and friendly, and only a couple of stops from the obvious central bits of Barcelona. We ate at one of the local tapas restaurants (can't remember the name, but it was run by two cheery women) and also had our final breakfast at nearby Federal Cafe, which was perfect. We also wandered up the hill behind the area for a view of the city on Sunday morning.
A great weekend - we would definitely recommend Mark as a host and his flat as a great place to stay.
Mark is a very congenial and hospitable host who did his best to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible, even when something unexpected popped up, as it usually does.
2 things to be aware of is to keep your belongings close to you at all times as there was a night where the friend I was travelling with got pick pocketed on the walk back from Las Ramblas and to be very conscious of the noise you make so as not to disturb the neighbour.
Other then that, this is a perfect place to stay.
The flat location was perfect! The flat was well appointed and had everything we needed. Mark was very helpful and was always responsive. I would recommend this flat to anyone.
Brilliant little flat. Mark was a great host and very friendly. The flat is not big, but very charming and clean with a fantastic balcony. The area is quite lively and just slightly off the beaten tourist tracks, but it's only a short walk away and public transport links are excellent. But for those who need it very quiet, this might not be your flat/area.
Nettes Apartement in einem eher noch wenig touristischen Viertel Barcelonas mit Fussgängerzone vor der Haustüre und einigen Bars / Restaurants. Durch die super Lage war es möglich alles zu Fuss zu erreichen und auch spät abends sicher nach Hause zu kommen. Mark war sehr hilfreich und jeder Zeit vor und während des Aufenthalts erreichbar und sehr unkompliziert. Würde direkt wieder buchen!
Great apartment! Close to everything: subway, city centre, sea, shops, sightseens. One can get to Rambla in five minutes!
The apartment has almost all traveller needs. Nice bed, equipped kitchen, clean bathroom, TV and super-killer-mega-bonus - the balcony! We had a good time sitting there in the evenings and drinking Cava :)
Mark is a nice guy, he answered all our questions and was very helpful.
Of course we would stay there again.
About the Host, Mark
I am an open minded and liberal person who believes in good karma. Think of others before yourself and think how others would like you to treat them.
I love travel, opening my mind to new knowledge, I like current affairs and knowing what´s happening in this ever more connected world. I can´t live without my green tea, my healthy eating habits, the sun, and a brisk walk everyday.
I´m a fan of all Spaggetti Western movies, I also love Tarrantino, black humor and alternative films...
